t & I have registered for the Ontario 1500 event in Sept 2015 in #91 - a 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S in the "Stock 1" class.
You've probably seen the site already: http://www.ontario1500.ca/index.html

18951

The registration process was straightforward, and the organizers have been really responsive.
We sent them our "driving resume" which they approved before we hit the registration phase.

I'll post the progress of the car & project as time goes on.

We'll be looking for some sponsors as well! And, we need to build a trailer...

something a porsche can tow without breaking anything. we're only allowed to change 1 tire, and can only use the tools/parts we bring with us.
must look up porsche towing capacity.

That's as basic and light as it can get and you cant build something similar for cheaper, i'd pick it up if I were you.

Oh and good luck!

By Sep 2015 I'm pretty sure technology will be so advanced that they will have trailers that tow themselves!

we won't need any spares or tools.

only our mad skills and our wallets.

Cool! I'm hoping to join you but I'll have to see how things shake out the next few months.

I take offence to your use of the gay word.

the trailer is going to be the least of our worries.

it will be such a neat mental freakout between hammering the autocross/drag races (never done one)/time trials and making it to the next event.

all while hanging out with a dude i met on the interweb.

...and the tracks we've never seen before.

I plan to autocross this summer.
